Another word for someone exhibiting Antisocial Behaviour. Sociopathic behaviour is often associated with Psychopathic behaviour, but they are by no means synonyms. All Psychopaths are sociopaths, but not all sociopaths are psychopaths.

Sociopathic or Antisocial behaviour can range anywhere from severe shyness to homicidal mania. Compulsive lying also falls under the category of sociopathic behaviour.

Formally, a sociopath is someone who does or is characterized by 3 or more of the following:
- fails to conform to social norms, such as repeatedly performing acts that warrant an arrest
- deceitfulness, such as repeated lying, conning others for a good reason or not, and/or using aliases
- failure to plan ahead, or impulsivity
- aggressiveness or irritability
- disregard for safety of oneself and others
- consistent irresponsibility, such as inability to honor obligations
- lack of remorse, such as being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another.

A good example of a sociopath is the part perfectly played by Angelina Jolie in the movie Girl, Interrupted.

By a more common definition, a sociopath is a manipulative somebody who cannot and does not want to feel love or affection, and simply uses others for his/her own benefit.

I've known people like that. It's very nice to tell them to fuck off.
